The skip of Canada's gold medal-winning Paralympic curling team has been arrested for allegedly trafficking thousands of counterfeit Viagra and Cialis pills.

Jim Armstrong was taken into custody April 15 in Blaine, Wash., after he picked up the bogus tablets from a U.S. postal outlet, according to a U.S. federal court complaint.

Customs officials in Los Angeles intercepted the package of allegedly counterfeit goods from China on April 7. They allowed the package to go through and police were waiting for Armstrong, 59, as he exited the post office, the complaint said.

The post office box was in the name of Armstrong's late wife, Carleen Armstrong, who died of breast cancer in September 2009.

Armstrong, a retired dentist from Richmond, B.C., told the arresting officer his son had purchased the drugs so he could distribute them at Vancouver-area clubs, according to the complaint.

Armstrong was charged with trafficking in counterfeit drugs and was released from custody on a $20,000 bond. He is due back in U.S. District Court April 30.

Viagra and Cialis are prescription drugs intended to be used to correct erectile dysfunction in men.
